Need:

Waste plastic items

Tape

Scissors

PC with Word or Publisher, or similar

Common Sense Assessment:

Scissors—be careful when cutting plastic not to cut yourself.

Sharp edges—round off any sharp points, or make sure they’re not going to injure anyone.

Do:

My original idea was to do this in patrols, and to make one big plastic sculpture out of all the bits of plastic you’d collected. We obviously can’t do that.

So, I thought if you make your own plastic sculpture, and use it in a poster or similar to highlight the problems posed by plastic pollution. My embarrassing example attempt is attached.

You could also include a couple of facts about the subject you’ve found from the internet to make your poster more informative and useful than mine.

Post your posters (save them as a PDF or JPEG) at our Virtual Scout Hut with a few words about it—www.leire-dunton.soutleics-scouts.org.uk/the-scout-hut

Bits of Badge Covered:
